Cajun Shrimp Toast

Cajun Shrimp Toast

Ingredients:
8 ounces medium shrimp, peeled and tail off
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1 French baguette ends trimmed and cut into 1/3-inch slices
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.

Place shrimp in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Add olive oil and garlic; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Gently toss to combine. Place into oven and roast just until pink, firm and cooked through, about 6-8 minutes. Let cool before dicing into bite-size pieces.

In a large bowl, combine shrimp, mayonnaise, sour cream, mozzarella, Parmesan, onion powder, thyme, and oregano; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Place baguette slices in a single layer onto the baking sheet. Top with shrimp mixture; sprinkle with Cajun seasoning. Place into oven and bake for 6-8 minutes, or until cheeses have melted.

Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
